Title: The Skulls
Post by: abedsabeh on October 25, 2013, 04:03:12 am
This will be the title of my short scary Halloween challenge animation. It's going to be a bit tough to have it ready in such a short time, but I will give it a shot.

Awesome!

Can't wait to see the final animation, Abed!
If you need any CPU cores to get this thing rendered on time, I can 'donate' 24 Sandy Bridge cores for a couple of days next week.

You can send me a PM if you're interested.

Or send them to us - we can render them on 200 cores.

This last shot looks so Tim Burton-esqe. Actually, reminds me more of Gaiman's Coraline.

The last image would not look out of place as a shot in Army of Darkness. :)
Hmm... Definitely need to watch that again on All Hallow's Eve...

Yes Martin  :)

Tonight, I will be finishing the rendering, and tomorrow will be the time for editing with music and SFX. Here is the another combined shot, and I promise you, no more teasing, I will post the full animation in my next post :)

This is my entry for the animation challenge.

I used Maya to model the scene, AfterEffects to put everything together. The animation was 100 % done within KeyShot. I wanted to add more special effects in the post, but there is no more time for it. I hope you like it!

Pump up the volume/full screen and be prepared  :)

Happy Belated Halloween!

That's really amazing! You got some nice dynamic motion going on there.
Astounded that you pulled this off on such short notice.

Dries, I am not sure about that, and frankly it doesn't make me feel good with no one to compete with.
Title: Re: The Skulls
Post by: DriesV on November 05, 2013, 05:46:27 am
Yeah, I can totally echo your feeling.
I'm always puzzled by the low number of animations on these contests. Especially considering how fast and easy it can be to make one.

I still wish you the best of luck! ;)
